RIVERHEAD - Incumbent Riverhead Town Supervisor Sean Walter rebounded in his uncertain re-election bid with a victory in a three-way race.

Walter was running for a fourth term in office. He ran on the Conservative line after losing the Republican primary to challenger Jodi Giglio.

"I'm very proud of the record of accomplishment, and I think the residents understand it's not time to change horses," Walter said early on in the voting.

Giglio, a Republican town councilwoman, defeated Walter in the GOP primary earlier this year. 

The Democratic challenger was businessman Anthony Coates.
